Some of you may not be aware, but last week I presented 2 sessions on Nokia’s Lumia App Labs series. The series is a great way to get up to speed with everything new in Windows Phone 8 very quickly. Both of my sessions were titled “Lumia App Labs – Developing Apps for Nokia Lumia Phones using RadControls for Windows Phone”. Below is more information including the resources:
With a membership in the Nokia Premium Developer Program, you're provided a free license to the entire suite of Telerik RadControls. These controls are designed to decrease the development time for your Nokia Lumia apps and to help increase their ratings in the Windows Phone Store. Over 40 custom are included and they are already used by a number of publishers with top-selling apps. The controls offers a wide range of capabilities to complement the stock UI toolbox, such as powerful animations, data visualization, and design templates.
Michael Crump gives you a brief overview of RadControls for Windows Phone, including interaction controls for animations, charting, and trial reminders; productivity controls, including diagnostics; and design controls, including Windows Phone Design Language templates and hub tile controls. Then Michael illustrates how to use the control and development techniques in coding demonstrations.
The video is available on demand.
You may also download the slides if you wish.
The full source code is provided as well.
